Since 2007, Spanish artists David de la Mano and Pablo S. Herrero have worked tirelessly to create a series of stunning public wall murals that radiate with both organic and urban expressionism.

The series created by this talented duo is called the Movimiento Señora, and occupies walls all over Spain, but originated in Salamanca. Each work shows the silhouette of a side profile of a man's head. Within the head is a forest of minimalist trees, their branches snaking around the head, emulating the veins of the brain. To contrast the trees with their skull-like container, the two street artists painted the head black and the trees white, giving them a stark and dramatic contrast.

Each of these works is located the sides of dilapidated buildings around Spain, which lends a sort of beauty to the organic quality of the art. By combining an urban landscape with a naturalistic piece of art, de la Mano and Herrero have created a beautiful blend of past and present.
